It’s going to be a long season for you guys. I expect OKC to move Adams now too. You are getting Rubio/ K. Oubre and some picks.

J. Holiday has been traded to the Bucks

Harden has turned down a contract extension with the Rockets and has demanded a trade to the B. Nets.

Some crazy moves going on in the league. CP3 to the Suns. Could get them to the playoffs though, but that's it. I've always been skeptical about guard combos. That's not the recipe for a championship, except of course if you're the greatest shooting backcourt of all time. The best combo for a chip is the guard-big man combo, or two wings to a lesser degree. That's why I want Harden to go Philly and Simmons to go the other way. Both teams would be better off.

Is it just me or these teams are giving way too much for these guards.

The Suns gave too much for cp3
Blazers for Covington
Bucks for Jrue.

It's too much.

Everyone is desperate that’s the truth. The market does not have a lot of valuable pieces, so they over pay for the few available and teams want to win now.

True. Many teams want to win now. Demand is far in excess of supply. Price will rise.

I agree but Phoenix has a solid big man in Ayton, i think CP3 can have similar impact like Nash for the Suns in the mid 2000's

Well, Ayton is not a championship piece. Not yet.

The beast is fully grown! shocked Former GM had been massaging Harden's ego for years, even firing coaches just so Harden could play iso and rack up points. But now the beast can no longer be tamed - instead of looking in the mirror and changing his game, he wants out. I know it will end in frustration, wether he stays in houston or not because Harden is selfish.

Personally, I have been hoping Harden and Morey got shipped out as early as 3 seasons ago. I want to see what Silas jr can do - we need some young guns who can take instructions, and if we make the trades right, maybe even wait one season, we can get a team better than what we have now.

CP3 has a way of elevating players, there is no telling how that suns team will look mid season. We may have another Denver danger in the west

But truth is that with the current roster put together by Morey their championship window was over. it was a culdesac. No way out of it. Best bet is to start all over again.

The Celtics pick Aaron Nesmith (SF) with the 14th pick. We definitely need a shooter and we hope that is what Aaron brings.
Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 4:33am On Nov 19
My igbo brothers I greet you grin You have like 5 picks in round 1 if the draft. Lots of players to watch next season. This will be sweet

The Phoenix Suns have a good history with guards.

CP might bring some maturity to the team. An over saturation of guards might be another problem.

Desperation. I feel especially sorry for the Bucks should they lose Giannis.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 7:23am On Nov 19
I see Doc Rivers trading for his son in law. No be only Nigeria man know man dey go oh.

Richardson should add some defense and Tyler Bey is a very good steal and smart pickup off that trade. The Mavs front office made some nice picks

Sixers move All Horford for Danny Green and also give away 1 first round pick and a second round pick

The likes of DeAndre Jordan owe their careers to CP3. If he's healthy the Suns could squeak into the playoffs and take OKC's spot

These teams are simping hard sort of. grin The Bucks are not winning anything with Middleton as the second best player. Giannis's style of play sef get him own handicap when playoffs come so it makes no sense as to why the Bucks are doing too much.

That right leg was compensating for his ACL injury and doing way too much work. I'm hurt ngl. I thought we'd just need to draft Wiseman and pick up where we left off. I hope he comes back strong.

This is really sad. Must be devastating for Warrior fans. Let's pray he recovers fully. The league needs Klay healthy. Rare talent.
